I am not sure, if we are on the same page ;-)

As 3rd party compoments which violate Apache's Third-Party Licensing 
Policy are not allowed they have to be removed.
Thus one part of the tasks for the proposed "IP cleared" milestone are 
to remove these without having deeply thought about a replacement. Thus, 
we will lose certain features - like the report builder extension.
It is the subject of the next proposed "features back" milestone to 
identify the features which should be brought back and for which 
corresponding interest and resources are available.

BTW, I do not think that any used 3rd party component on which Oracle 
has no copyright on will be covered by Oracle's SGA.

Best regards, Oliver.
